The Brazilian model who has accused Neymar of rape has arrived at court
The Brazilian model who has accused Neymar of rape has arrived at court as a police report revealed she once stabbed her ex-husband during a fight.
Najila Trindade, 26, says she was ‘aggressively attacked’ by the soccer star in a Paris hotel last month.
Police papers seen by MailOnline say the mother-of-one stabbed her former husband Estivens Alves during a fight at their Sao Paulo home in 2014.
Mr Alves, a former analyst at the Santander bank, was rushed to hospital after the attack which happened during an argument while she was sat on the sofa eating an apple.
Ms Trindade, who has a six-year-old son with her former husband, claimed she was defending herself from his aggression.
The report reads: ‘The complainant reports she was in the living room, sitting down, eating an apple with a knife.
‘He came towards her and grabbed her by the arms, which is when he was hit with her knife, causing him an injury to his chest.’
On seeing her husband was wounded, Ms Trindade called his brother to take him to hospital.
The model claims the PSG star attacked then raped her in a Paris hotel room after he paid for her to come over from Brazil after meeting her on Instagram.
Neymar vehemently denies the accusations.

This week, after the footballer released a video denying the allegations and revealed messages between the two, Ms Trindade broke her anonymity to repeat the claims on Brazilian TV.
A video also emerged, filmed by Ms Trindade during her second meeting with Neymar, showing her hitting him as he lay on the hotel bed in what she said was an attempt to get him to repeat the aggression of the first encounter.
Her former husband this week claimed he and Ms Trinidade had a ‘respectful relationship’ and didn’t mention the police incidents.
‘What happened between me and her, hasn’t got anything to do with what happened in France,’ he said.

‘We had good and bad moments. What is importance is that we overcame the bad moments.’
He also said that their six-year-old son ‘idolises’ Neymar.
He said: ‘Neymar is his idol. The problem is that today, my son is associated with a person, who is his mother, who is suing Neymar.
‘The child has nothing to do with Neymar’s problems. My son is being mocked on social networks and he is being judged.’
He added: ‘When she returned from her trip to Paris, she didn’t tell me anything. She was just quieter than before.
‘She only told me that something had happened and I should be prepared because of my son. I found out everything on the internet a few days later,’ he added.
